Martin Garza Garcia – 1929 Civil Registration Death Record, Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

Posted by

I had no idea that I would ever come across this document since Martin Garza my great-great-grandfather was born in Jan 30 1837. Good thing he lived to the great old age of 92. With this document I also found another one of his sons that I didn’t even know he had. Nicolas Garza. My uncle had told me that Martin does have a head stone at the cemetery but he forgot to tell me which one. This document also indicates that he was buried in the Cemetery of Congregacion Arcabuz.
